Two civilians, including a girl, were injured in the latest aggression by the Indian forces across the Line of Control (LoC) in Nikial Sector on Saturday.

The latest cross-border unprovoked firing means a total of six innocent civilians have so far been injured during the last 24 hours, who have been rushed to the nearby health facilities for treatment.

According to a series of tweets posted by the ISPR DG, the Indians using artillery targeted the civilian population in Mohra village, resulting in serious injuries to two people, including an 18-year-old girl. OfficialDGISPR/status/ 1248898838083129344

Earlier, the ISPR DG said the Indian troops resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violations during the last 24 hours using artillery and heavy mortars in Sharda, Dhudnial and Shahkot sectors along the LoC, deliberately targeting the civilian population. OfficialDGISPR/status/ 1248845799578046466

As a result, four innocent citizens, including a 15-year-old girl sustained serious injuries, as the Indian army targeted the Bessan Wali and Chhari villages.

According to the DG ISPR, the Pakistan Army responded effectively with and targeted those Indian army posts which initiated the fire.

In 2020, the Indian army has so far committed 708 ceasefire violations, in which two citizens embraced martyrdom while 42 sustained injuries.
